Down Goes Boxberger

March 18th, 2016

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Tampa Bay Rays

At least the Rays have fireballer Jake McGee. No, wait. He was shipped to Colorado.

Yes, the Rays’ closer and 2015 All-Star, Brad Boxberger, is injured and isn’t expected back until mid-May.

WDAE-AM 620 beat reporter Steve Carney shared the news this morning.

Tampa Bay Times beat writer Marc Topkin Twittered that Kevin Cash is not naming a replacement closer immediately and the organization will not seek a new arm in a trade.

Joe wouldn’t bet on the latter. The Rays’ great tradition of finding bullpen arms off the street isn’t dead yet.
